This is Kasumba John, 13 Years old.

Kasumba John young boy who lives in the village of Mityana in Uganda

Kasumba's father passed away when he was only nine years old and his family was faced with the reality that they may not sur vive with out his earnings.

Their situation was dire, and kasumba's mother worried they would no longer lead a dignified life in which her children could access three basic meals a day.

Hence, she worked in different hoses as a maid, getting paid next to nothing and spending as much as possible working to avoid starvation.

Kasumba and his siblings spent these difficult time living in a small house made of brick and tin, going to school and making their home as nice as possible despite their vulnerable situation.

Unfortunately, even this small comfort slipped away when her mother realized that her children could not continue studying and would need to work if they were going to survive.

This broke Kasumba's heart because he enjoyed school, and all he wanted to do was work hard and grow up to be a Doctor.

Now, thanks to sponsorship from Godwin Charity Foundation, all of this has changed...

The sponsorship come at a much needed time. It meant he could continue going to school to fulfil her dreams of being a doctor instead of working at a young age and giving up his education.

When Kasumba received this good news, he was elated and worked hard at school with hope in his heart. Kasumba is receiving all A grades in his classes and his confidence has grown massively.

Thanks to his sponsorship funds, she is receiving food, educational materials and his tuition fees, exam fees and school fees are all paid for on a quarterly basis. His mother no longer has to worry about where their next meal is coming from.

Kasumba says that his school teachers are all friendly, and her school environment is pleasant and comfortable.

He will continue to succeed thanks to continued sponsorship and will live a life that is a far cry from his previously dire situation.

He is happy, and excited about where his future will take him and has big dreams. Thank you for giving his hope.
